March has been a crazy month full of fun adventures. We started off the month with our annual trip to the "big apple" with The Browns. We look forward to this time with our friends every year and the trip did not disappoint.
Here we are on our first day there. We always manage to eat at Rue 57, which is a good restaurant near our hotel.
While we were there we saw the Broadway play, "The Book of Mormon." Entertainment and choreography-wise it was awesome, but I have to say that it was at times very offensive to Christians (not just Mormons) and full of shock-value. It wasn't what I was expecting, but it was definitely an experience I won't soon forget!
The picture above is the view from Nancy and Karl's balcony. The weather while we were there was cold (it even snowed one day!) but that didn't stop us from enjoying a glass of wine taking in this view!
When we got back to Birmingham Parrish was out of school for Spring Break so we packed back up and headed to the beach to spend time with Frankie and Tappy and my sister Caroline for a few days.
It occurs to me that I haven't mentioned on my blog that my mom (aka Tappy) got married to a wonderful man in February! They had a sweet, family ceremony at Frankie's house followed by cake and coffee and we could not be more thrilled for them. Frankie's grandaddy name is "Pap" and he is already adored by Parrish and Knox. Here's a picture of the happy couple:
So, as I was saying...we went to the beach to visit with them over Spring Break and...
Parrish loved the stuffed alligator at The Shrimp Boat restaurant.
And spent the rest of his time braving the frigid water to skim board.
It is amazing to me that kids rarely let the cold stop them. Parrish has fun no matter the weather and I love that about him! The grin from ear to ear that Knox has on his face is the reaction he has anytime his brother comes into view. These two boys love each other so much and it makes my heart so happy.
Caroline, Tappy and Knox came out to see the skim boarding show.
And Parrish and I built a sand castle.
Knox and I snuggled...
And he enjoyed his very first beach trip.
Cannon buried P in the sand to form a recliner of sorts.
We all had a lot of fun and are really looking forward to spending more time in the surf and on the sand this summer!
